Brand New Calderwood Hall
This past weekend we had the great honor of playing the very first public concert in the brand new Calderwood Hall at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. Renzo Piano designed this truly unique space where the audience sits all around the performers in four stories of front row seats!
To celebrate the new hall, we gave the world premiere of an amazing new piece that Sean Shepherd just wrote for us. His "Trio" has three flavorful movements entitled "florid hopscotch", "Calderwood", and "slow waltz of the robots". We filled out our program with Mozart's sunny Trio in C Major, K 548 and Mendelssohn's rousing Trio in D Minor, Op. 49.
WGBH broadcast our performance live, and you can listen to all of it here.

This concert was the first in a series of three we'll be giving in Calderwood Hall this year. We will be back on April 22nd and September 30 playing more Mozart and Mendelssohn (Felix and Fanny) as well as world premieres by Helen Grime and Gabriela Lena Frank.
